    It's wise for anyone to be carrying when gamblin', and assume most other players are too. And if you're BG, don't bet against a "full house."

    Investigator Chad McBride said the two men were with four others, playing poker inside a building at 115 Commerce Blvd. just before 7 a.m. Tuesday.

    Obviously, avid poker players...don't mess with them...this guy found out the hard way.

    Another piece of the article:

    McBride said Jermaine Scott pulled a handgun, trying to recover lost money and rob the others. McBride said another player, who had a concealed weapon permit,pulled his own gun and the two men opened fire.

    Scott later died at the hospital. The coroner said the cause of death was multiple gunshot wounds. McBride said another man was shot in the hand and treated at the hospital.
    Looks like a good shoot, some people aren't too bright. When you gamble with money, you may lose. When you gamble with my life, you will lose.

    Sounds like something from an old western movie. Don't hear stories like this every day. Dummy ought to know not to pull a gun on nobody.

    You are not paranoid if They are actually out to get you, however, They probably are not and you probably are.
